POEM: “sunflowers”

sunflowers”

charcoal heads droop, their glowing halos 
weighted with the heft of so much cheer

petals flame this dinner table hearth
lightening the heart of this happy home

sunshine yellow arms outstretch to embrace 
or supplicate, cut from their grassy beds,

their tendrilled roots removed, replaced, 
stabilized instead by a shallow red glass

its life-giving water dries up all too soon

POEM: “Autumnal Love”

Autumnal Love”.

evening songs tattoed

across an autumn breeze

.

a golden sky’s nutbrown breath

leaves pepper the air

.

birds prepare to flee the coming freeze

frost’s first exhale boldens the winds

.

the burgundy and orange world 

crunches beneath our feet

.

no wonder we call this season

fall
